Turning a tight outdoor space into a place to swim, dine and relax

Cindy and John were looking to maximize the backyard space of their westside Toronto home. Space was tight but their dreams were big. They wanted a stationary pool and space where they could host friends and family for BBQs. In the past, we have helped them upgrade their front porch into an entrance vestibule and transform their basement into a nanny suite. So when they were looking for help to improve their backyard, they called Oriel.

Finishing and flood-proofing a basement playroom

Margot and Manuel were looking to finish their basement to make a playroom for their child and have a place to relax. When we opened up the walls, we found water damage along the front wall. After an assessment, we helped them redirect the outside water flow, repair the affected interior foundation wall, and finish the basement.

Converting a closet into a bathroom and building custom cabinets

After working on a number of projects on their previous home, our clients had recently moved into a new home and needed a full bathroom on their 3rd floor – where their two kids’ bedrooms were located. 

We repurposed the existing closets into a 3 pieces bathroom, installing heated tile floors, a pocket door, a new toilet, a sink, and a shower/bath. We also repainted the stairs and installed a stair runner.
